The Fuji I have appears free from shutter issues and I can focus it with an acceptable degree of success, though an SLR it ain't and speed of focussing speed can frustrate. It does require a degree of patience. If you can try one in a store you will see. That said I love it and the results are astonishing. In low light it would produce IQ not so far off a D700 with a f/2.8 zoom set on 35mm.

The Sony is quite good at using other lenses, with adaptors required, but I very much doubt it would AF with a Lumix lens. Moreover the Lumix has a significantly smaller image circle so I suspect you would get a lot of vignetting and probably miss the corners of the larger Sony sensor completely. Others will doubtless set you right on that one.
